  2. Genious. Sheer Genious. I had purchased InstantCopy 7, and even after the latest update, the FAQs, the registry editing tools, still found the results unacceptable. The video quality was fantastic, but in more then 3/4 of the movies I copied, while they looked great, when it came down to the last 3-4 chapters of the movie, I would get sudden "skipping" that looked as though big chunks of the films dissappeared (Bourne Identity; Star Trek IV; Chasing Amy) this occurance continued to happen.. the first 1 1/2 hours under Instant Copy -looked- fantastic.. but the end of the films were always butchered.

    While DVDShrink doesn't give me quite the same quality, it is much closer to "instant" .. on my P4 2.8G, InstantCopy took slightly under 2 hours for a movie (just to convert) and of course, yielded results in goofy .PDI format, which required me to have the PDI tool, or have it go direct to DVD (which I chose more often) by yielding correctly parsed VOBs, DVD Shrink solves all of that.

    Kudos to excellent freeware!

    That could possibly be your problem. Try burning from the PDI image instead.

    has anyone seen DVDCopyDecrypter which is exactly the same as DVDShrink?
    DVDCopyDecrypter = DVDStinks

  5. tmservo,
    Try the conversion to .iso mode if you plan on saving them. Then burn from Nero. I've done about 200 or so movies with it and NEVER had a problem. 2 coasters total, one was an electrical storm power outage and the other I'm not sure, it just said failed burn and ejected DVD. When I retried it burnt fine.

  7. Finer control over compression but basically the same algorithms.

    I tried it last night on the Matrix.

    I just wanted the movie and took title set 2.

    The conversion completed the files played on power dvd, however Nero give a error. The ifo and bup files were there but the other 2 files were not. All the vob file were _02_.

    Anyone know how to correct this ?

  10. dlb this sounds stupid but did you MAKE sure that the set that you chose was the right one? by using the scroll at the bottom. i know that in Bridge on River Kwai, the setup was really wierd and i had to use 2 different vts sets. mine was just stupid though i kept NOT noticing it wasnt the entire movie.

    I've backed up nearly 50+ DVDs now. I've used DVDXCopy (never again), DVD Copy Plus (never again), DVD2One (didn't care for it), Instant Copy v7, & now DVD Shrink. So far I've only had non-playable, on my standalone, from DVDXCopy & Nero. And for some reason I had problems with IC not finishing the burn, so I ended up with several blown DVDs. Plus I can't at this point make ISOs as I'm using FAT32 vs NTFS till I reinstall.
    Since then my optimum usage for a DVD9 is DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink removing all subs & all but 1 audio track, reencode, then burn with RecordNow Max. Occasionally I use IC7 for DVDs I can't get close to the 4.38 Gig size & PDI Tool to extract the files, then RNM. I have yet to get 1 blown DVD. I would have used IC7, but Shrink gets nearly the same quality @ much less time.

    Thanks for the hard work. it's much appreciated.

    First off, when do you get the error? If when ripping the DVD, try using DVD Decryptor, if when burning, try Stomp's Record Now Max. I have yet to get any errors using these + DVD Shrink.

  18. To the guy with the SONY 500. I have the same drive. I burn the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS with RecordNow (NOT MAX) that came with the drive. 100% success so far. In RecordNow just select "DATA DISK", then add the folders VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS, and then burn it.

    You'd think, people with this sort of money, they could just buy another copy of the damn movie to give to their friends or kids or take on the airplane or whatever they claim to do.

    The rest of us with TVs in the 20"-30" range, now all this trouble seems a little more reasonable, as this reflects a more modest entertainment budget.

    Sorry, just a cynical observation. Nothing else to contribute.

  20. Does anyone know if the author of DVD Shrink is back from vacation yet? The last word from him was he was going to alter the program to use a slider to select quality instead of buttons for set levels of compression. He also implied that he was going to increase video quality of his engine. I haven't seen any posts from him for weeks. Was just wondering where he stands.

    Any idea whether this program keeps 5.1 audio while encoding?

    Considering the errors that have been reported. Not to mention no proper support for Chapters and subtittling, he should keep the next version free as well,and charge for the one that works, when the above shortcomings are solved,and when the bugs are fixed.
